Subj:   Re: How do I CAST a numeric into a numeric?
From:   tristan.bayliff

Hi Bob,

I think the following should do what you're after. I've used a derived table as an example to create a decimal column to select off. To remove the decimal point in the end character result, I cast as an integer which can then be trimmed to remove leading blanks and then become a left justified character field. You should be careful of unexpected results if the decimal isn't a whole number though.

     select  trim(col1 (integer)) (char(20))
     from   (select  12345 (decimal(11,0)) ) dt (col1)
